Hidden Gems of South America

Hidden Gems of South America

Sometimes travel is all about expectations. If you go somewhere because travel websites or guidebooks talked it up and you’re expecting amazement, beware – it may not be all you’ve built it up to be! Here are some places that for us were just the...
Chiloé: Part II

Chiloé: Part II

After seeing the cities of Chiloé, we wanted to see a bit more of the nature as well. We had our ferry tickets booked, so now we had peace of mind and could enjoy some middle-of-nowhere peace. We headed to National Park Chiloé and set camp. All the time, we could hear...
Chiloé

Chiloé

Chiloé, namely it’s biggest island “Isla Grande de Chiloé” – is the second largest island on the South American continent. As you will see, it’s a quite different from the rest of Chile and our last stop in the lake district. The...
North-west Argentina

North-west Argentina

At 15,500 ft we crossed from Chile into Argentina over the Paso San Francisco. We’d enjoyed our three days waiting in the high Andes for the border to open, but were looking forward to descending down to rejoin the Ruta 40 highway and the more temperate climate of...
Cabin Hopping with Richard’s Mom, Chile

Cabin Hopping with Richard’s Mom, Chile

We had some chores to take care of in Santiago before Richard’s mom arrived for a visit.  Santiago de Chile (in case you get confused with which Santiago I am speaking of) has a population of around 5 million people.  Manicured parcels of grass fill the...
Chilean Lake district

Chilean Lake district

Continuing from last post about Lake district, we picked up Janka’s sister and returned to Chile, because the next day we would pick our friend Tomáš in Puerto Montt. We found this beautiful spot to camp, next to the lake Llanquihue. There aren’t many...
Velita’s Adventures Continue

Velita’s Adventures Continue

It’s official- we’ve sold Velita to this man, Tom, an awesome dude who promises to continue to adventure with her throughout South America for the next year. We could not be more excited to leave this little lady in such great hands and to keep the dream...
Pisco, Astro and Snow

Pisco, Astro and Snow

Pisco brandy and astronomy are two of the things for which Chile’s Elqui Valley is famous. We’re rather fascinated by the stars and planets, and we also aren’t averse to the odd drop of brandy and wine tasting, so the Valley holds some interest for us. After that we...
Middle Chile: Exploring The Coast

Middle Chile: Exploring The Coast

From the Paso Internacional Los Libertadores (Argentina/Chile border) we snaked our way downwards from 10, 500 feet, completing the 29 hard switchbacks carved into the Andes.  We couldn’t imagine driving up this road in the wintertime, covered in snow I would expect,...

5. Wedding – Santiago, Chile

Mendoza, Argentina. We are in a hostel, visiting the wineries and thinking of going to northern Argentina, blasting emails to all directions, trying to find a wedding there. Meanwhile, Ivan is tagged in a local facebook group for Panamerican travellers and he tries to...
